bright and beautiful

The Sunday Challenge this week at Dottie's World has been set by Juliet:

'All Things Bright and Beautiful'.....evoking thoughts of Spring and Easter. The challenge is simply to make a project using 'bright and beautiful' colours and embellishments - of course featuring one of the downloads too.'
I am also entering this into the sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday where they have an absolutely brilliant sketch. Although my image is a little large so have had to twiddle the sketch slightly to fit all the elements in.

Here is my take:

For my card I used the image of Madison in China and I coloured her with my copics. It doesn't show up too well in the photo but I layered her trousers, tunic and left arm up on foam pads to add a bit of dimension to the card.

The stem of the parasol is a cocktail stick! All papers used are from the Cosmo Cricket ~ Hey Sugar range. The flowers are stamped images which I cut out and then layered with Hero Arts flowers. All ribbons are from my stash and the brads are by Papermania.
Thank you for looking.
